CHICAGO – It’s only fitting that part one of this major film franchise would red-carpet premiere in Chicago. After all, “Divergent” was filmed here (along with at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios) and its author Veronica Roth went to high school (Barrington High School) and college (Northwestern University) here. Even more, the plot of the first film takes place entirely within a mysteriously walled-in future version of Chicago.

Before it opens publicly on March 21, 2014 and begins competing with the likes of “The Hunger Games,” HollywoodChicago.com publisher Adam Fendelman hit the red carpet on March 4, 2014 to bring you a front-row seat to the stars and the fan swarm. In this video, Adam speaks with stars Shailene Woodley (“Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior”), Theo James (“Four”), Ansel Elgort (“Caleb Prior”), Amy Newbold (“Molly Atwood”) and Chicago-based author Veronica Roth. Stay tuned for “Insurgent” in 2015 and “Allegiant” in 2016! Enjoy!

This video was filmed and edited by TV class teacher Jeff Doles and his
students at Barrington High School (where Veronica Roth attended).

  • Monica Raymund on set for 'Tanya'

    CHICAGOTV fans know Monica Raymund as paramedic Gabby Dawson on the long-running “Chicago Fire.” But the talented actor is expanding her range, debuting her first film as director, “Tanya,” at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on Tuesday, August 1st, 2017. The short film – written by Sam Forman – will be part of “Female Filmmakers Night” at the Midwest Indie, and is part of Raymund’s involvement with Hidden Tears Project, an organization dedicated to raising consciousness by creating media on gender inequality, sexual abuse and human trafficking.

  • They're Playing Our Song

    CHICAGO – During the late disco era of the 1970s, an unusual musical opened on Broadway. Essentially a two person stage play, “They’re Playing Our Song” involved a songwriter and a lyricist who develop a stronger connection than just writing partners. The always passionate Brown Paper Box Co. of Chicago has unearthed this chestnut with a bright and fun revival at the Rivendell Theatre through August 20th, 2017.
